Odds are, if you’re a parent, you know who Sandra Boynton is. You probably either love or hate her books. I know a few people who can’t stand her, but we are huge fans here in our house. We have several of her books, but our favorite series is the “Little Pookie” series.
One of his first bedtime books was “Night Night, Little Pookie.” It was a gift from my mom. I used to read it to Knox every night before bed when he was a baby. I would cry at the end of the book (because I’m ridiculous) when I read this part:
“There are gentle winds blowing and stars all above you. Night Night, Little Pookie, I love you and love you. And love you and love you and love you and love you.”
And I would add on a bunch more “I love yous” just to make my point :) I love the simplicity of the book, and the end expresses exactly how I feel every time I put him to bed: like I can’t tell him how much I love him enough. Hopefully Lately will love the book as much as we all do when I whisper those last words in her ear before she drifts off to sleep each night.
